Character Rigging Help

Hello. I made this character based off of a LEGO MOC I made.
I rigged it myself, but I’m having a little trouble with it, specifically with the arms and legs.

It works fine with the legs and arms in these positions…

…but when want to move them in to positions like these, it just stays straight.

Do you have any tips on how to fix this? I would be very appreciative of any help you can give me! :smiley:

I’ve included my Blender file for a more hands-on view of the rig. Thanks! :slight_smile:

Your upper arms need to be constraint to an elbow target. Your ik targets for your knees are behind shoud be in front. your ik feet seem to be to low.

Okay… So make an IK handle for the upper arms?
And the IK targets for the knees are actually for the thighs, and the ones for the feet are for the rest of the leg chain. Wow… There was a lot about rigging that I didn’t know!!
Thanks for your help. :slight_smile:

It works! Thank you! :smiley: Oh, I see what you mean by too low now… XD Thanks again! :slight_smile:
